Rewarding the UK’s outstanding gift retailers

The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2024 - now in their 22nd great and glorious year – set out to recognise and reward the UK’s outstanding gift shops and gift departments. 

Retailers are encouraged to submit entries about their shop(s) while suppliers are urged to send in nominations for retailers they each felt have excelled over the last year ensuring that even the shyest of gift retailing heroes are recognised.

If you are a supplier, we would love to know which gift retailers you feel have excelled in the last year. 

Uniting the gift industry, The Greats gift retailer awards and The Giftware Association’s Gift of the Year (GOTY) awards joined forces last year with great success. The winners of both awards programmes willl be announced at The Gift Awards 2024, a lavish black tie evening event taking place at London’s Royal Lancaster hotel, overlooking London’s Hyde Park, on Thursday 16 May. The UK’s best gift retailers, as well as the top gift suppliers will receive the true recognition they deserve at one fabulous celebration.

Just as the GOTY awards have grown in stature on the product front, the past two decades has seen winning a Greats gift retailer award become the pinnacle for gift retailers both large and small – a prestigious, coveted retail trophy that recognises excellence, initiative, innovation and professionalism at the highest level.
The Greats awards are a fantastic opportunity for gift retailers right across the board - from the tiniest village shop to the largest multiple – to bang the drum about their achievements over the past year.
We're therefore on the lookout for those extra special gift and lifestyle retailers, departments stores and garden centres that, despite the challenges over the past 12 months, have stayed at the top of their game.
So please don’t be shy to shout about your shop!
